As the head curator for content at Linux Foundation events, I work with over 500 speakers a year on technical talks. Universally the people chosen to speak at our events have amazing technical knowledge. They know their stuff.

Josh will be giving a tutorial at our Collaboration Summit next month entitled "How to Give a Great Tech Talk."
